Basically, Graduate Students Need Individual Attention.
Kobler, J. F.
Graduate students do need and can benefit from instruction in the basis of composition, but the definition of what each student basically needs will vary so greatly that individual instruction is the only meaningful way to meet those needs. The demand for such instruction spurred the development of a graduate course at North Texas State University called "Studies in the Teaching of Composition." Two sections were established, one for foreign students concerned with mastering unfamiliar English basics, and one for native speakers with widely ranging needs. Students in this latter group worked toward mastery of skills needed for publication and successful completion of master's theses. Although more time was required to give students this individualized instruction, the positive effects of one-to-one tutoring were clearly visible. (KS)
